Hear what CMC athletes have to say about being part of the CMC family.
"Paul is an elite athlete and can coach elite athletes, but he also has a passion and conviction for the beginner - he took my less than confident, busy mom-of-three self and made me into a contender. If you need a killer coach who is kind, relatable, funny, approachable, and SUPER SKILLED at structuring training to make gains - Paul is your guy."
"When I started working with Paul I had just competed in an Olympic distance triathlon that I barely finished. Cycling was my weakest discipline and I found maintaining a 15mph pace difficult over 30 miles. By the end of my first season with Paul I completed my first 70.3 feeling strong and averaged 17.6mph on the bike over 56 miles! Paul is a gifted listener who knows when to push his athletes and when to ease off and his methods pay off."
"Coach Paul does a great job enforcing compliance while allowing “life” to happen during training. The tailored workouts he puts together have been working really well and he follows up with me after every one. I have gone from 1:40/100 to 1:25/100 in the pool after only one season. Every discipline of my triathlon has improved and I am enjoying it more and more."
"I could’ve never achieved my goal of being under 32 minutes to PR, and my “secret” goal of being under 30 without you! I owe it all to you!"
What can I say about Paul. I first got introduced to Paul in the middle of a mild panic. I had signed up for the Connecticut Half Ironman in mid-January and was told by another experienced coach that I needed to rethink my goals - as training for that race with only 4 months to go was an unreachable goal.
When I met Paul, he helped me settle into an amazing training routine. There was never any time I felt that I was alone and couldn't achieve my goals. From helping me select the right bike to getting in the pool and correcting my stroke, Paul was with me every step of the way. Even when I got injured 6 weeks out of my race, Paul adjusted my training so I would be able to cross the finish line.
I often tell people that the biggest benefit of having a Tri-Coach is not having to think about what you need to do. Every day your training and fueling is set, so staying focused and on-course is significantly easier.
The truth is, the real benefit comes from the tweaks he made, the encouragement he gives and the sense of community you get from working with Paul and his other clients.
Whether you've raced for a few years or never tried to get on a wetsuit, Paul is the best person to have in your corner.
